  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

    DBT is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals with problems related to chronic suicidality and self-harm.  This form of therapy is well known for clients with Borderline Personality Disorder but works well for other problems as well.

    TF-CBT is a form of therapy used to help adolescents and children work through the trauma(s) that they have experienced.  The therapist helps the child with his/her thoughts, emotions, relaxing exercises, and coping skills prior to working directly with the trauma.  Children and parents learn new skills to help them process their thoughts and feelings related to the trauma.

  • Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)

    PCIT is an evidence-based therapy approach for children, ages 2-7.  PCIT is taught to the child’s parent(s) to help them learn specific strategies to deal effectively with decreasing their child’s aggressive behaviors, increasing the child’s compliance, and increasing positive responses by the parent(s).  Parents also learn effective discipline strategies.  PCIT has been proven, through extensive research, to be effective at improving the child’s behaviors not only in the home but in the school environment, as well.
